Our Lancashire friends are still in the process of finding a couple of routes for us.
I’m told that Number 16, Pendle Hill Fringe, will be from Barley and will be a Cat 2 or 3.
Number 17, Accrington / Burnley Area, will be from Towneley near Burnley and will be a Cat 2.
Latest news from Lancashire
Towneley (Burnley area) is a cat 1 so those with smaller scooters and wheelchairs should find it easy. The route goes through parkland, along the canal and past a lake with views up onto the surrounding hills. If you have already booked and got your joining instructions I have some further directions from the M65 motorway. Please check your map as not all the junctions in that area allow access both ways.
If you are staying over the week-end and still have some charge in your batteries Wycoller is a lovely hamlet to vist. With loads of history, the Hall ruins, ford and packhorse bridge. It is very compact and picturesque a photographer’s dream. if you don’t take the camera you could always try the teashop for those yummy homemade cakes.
